. >> they see president obama and new york city the same day netanyahu does and instead goes on a daily talk show. >> disrespectful of prime minister netanyahu? really? let's hear what that man said today, the prime minister himself. >> i want to thank you for the investment you have made in our relationship and in strengthening the friendship and appliance between our two countries. it is deeply, deeply appreciated. >> in a visit important to our nation's security, the republican attacks against this president's foreign policy seemed puny, especially when the president and prime minister were actually laughing. >> and i want to express a special thanks to sarah as well as your two sons for their warmth and hospitality. it was wonderful to see them. they are -- i did inform the prime minister that they are very good looking young men who clearly got their looks from their mother. >> well, i can say the same of your daughters. >> this is true. our goal is to improve our gene pool by marrying women better than we are. >> this is the reality. the gop consistently tries to paint the president as
that's where the obama administration, as aaron pointed out, made a mistake i think they hit netanyahu very hard on settlements while at the same time extending a hand to the iranians. that did not go over very well with a variety of israelis. here israel was a staunch ally of the united states. had come up 16 years in which presidents were in love with their israeli counterparts as aaron pointed out and here was the new president taking a very hard stance on settlements while at the same time telling the iranians he'll talk to them about anything anywhere at any time i think that could have been handled differently. i think obviously we've been dancing around the issue of settlements for a very long time. this is a central issue in the conflict. >> rose: aaron, are the israelis doing things that make a palestinian settlement increasingly difficult? >> sure. >> rose: are they doing it because they don't want to see a settlement? they don't want to see an agreement? >> politicians respond to immediate pressures. you've got a series of israeli politicians since 1967 and prime ministerers
here. >> hi, njohn. >> so much scratchiness between obama and netanyahu the last four years. an event in the u.s. campaign where netanyahu more or less endorsed mitt romney for president. how much of the loathe that is coming from b.b. towards our president is kind of him trying to make sure that he has not done long-term damage to the relationship in that direction? we know what barack obama's objectives here are but it it seems to me netanyahu is making up for any hurt feelings he did over last summer. >> absolutely. there is a political balance here. if you can see the see-saw right now. netanyahu is weaker than re-elected barack obama. they need each other. but israel needs the u.s. to have its back, both because of syria, the civil war next door, the possibility of chemical weapons which would be, as the president said, a real game-changer, though, i'm told that they have no evidence that chemical weapons were used by the regime. the president is very clear that it would not have been used by the opposition. that was fallacious argument from the regime but no hard evidence they w
points were in the news conference that the two leaders had, president obama and prime minister netanyahu where the president said there is is not a lot of daylight between the u.s. and israel on the question of iran and its nuclear program. but then the news conference went on to demonstrate exactly where that daylight is prime minister netanyahu said that we think, israel thinks there is a certain point iran with get with nuclear program they won't have built the nuclear bomb so close immunity from any kind of military strike. netanyahu said twice this is our view, this is oour view. and by way of suggesting it is not the u.s. president's view. one further point, bill, if i may. president obama said as a sort of a big announcement in his opening remarks that the united states remains committed to helping israel maintain what's called the qme. qualitative military edge. what that means no matter what arms we sell to the region, we will always help israel maintain qualitative edge over its neighbors. we are committed to sex extending that beyond 2017 for some period of time. we will talk
the biggest point of tension between president obama and prime minister netanyahu. and it was important that the two of them struck the same tone and time frame in their joint press conference. president obama has talked about a year or so before iran might make a decision or move in important ways on its controversial nuclear program. and president -- prime minister netanyahu talked about a faster timeframe, greater potential capability and yet at the press conference he agreed with the president. so that carves out more time for diplomacy and other options before we get to this big question of whether there might be a military strike. >> syria obviously a huge topic for him there too in so many of the countries he visited and neighbors as well. and vitally in what goes on in syria. i'm curious whether you think it influence how those other countries are responding to the crisis in syria or whether really a lot of people feel it didn't change much at all. >> well, i think we're seeing a turning point in the united states. there is a higher profile in terms of the kind of background act
washington nationals could come to -- bet -- prime minister benjamin netanyahu said president barack obama is taking the lead on how u.s. will respond to iran's threats and that's because the u.s. is israel's strongest ally and iran could have a nuclear weapon to use in the next few months and they believe it could not happen for another year which could form more peace talks. he wants to talk about peace. >> to speak directly to the people of israel and to neighbors... >> reporter: the president is meeting with israel and the two will hold a news conference. live in washington kyla campbell ktvu channel 2 morning news. >>> the 15-year-old girl from pakistan who was shot in the head by the taliban because she fought for the rights of women now has a new school to go to. she is attending school in birmingham england. last october she was shot by a taliban who shot her in the head who claims she was promoting western thinking. she said she wants all girls to have the basic opportunities to go to school. >>> a group of nine-year-olds in berkeley has been talking to their friends via skype. hi
: and in that and the other remarks, you heard what? >> what i heard was that clearly president obama and prime minister netanyahu have reached an agreement, however grudging it may be, it seems solid that the united states will not block an israeli strike on iran. and it led, for me led to the question of have we given them the latest bunker buster technology they would need to severely degrade or damage the nuclear program. and it wasn't just that one remark. from the president of the united states and from the prime minister of israel heard repeated remarks about israel's right to defend itself. israel's right to act alone. the united states would not stand in their way, but of course, reinforcing the idea that the united states would act militarily if necessary, but the interesting point how, i think president obama made it, how perceptions can be different, israel can perceive a threaten more quickly, as an ext threat than we do and that the government netanyahu. >> this is what krauthammer was saying on special report. and sound bites. i think that bb kept repeating that to say that the president

smiles, so much hand holding practically between president obama and benjamin netanyahu. as we are waiting this press conference between president obama and president mahmoud abbas, what are you looking for in terms of how they relate to each other? >> reporter: a couple of key questions. does the president of the united states lay out any timetable for his effort to resume peace process? i expect the answer to that is no. he will say there's more foundation building. what does president abbas say about his willingness to come back to the table? right now he says he will only come back if israel meets certain conditions, chief among them, stop iping settlement construction in the west bank. construction is under way. and that construction has accelerated because president netanyahu was made at the united nations for recognizing, essentially, a palestinian state. that is a poke in the eye of the palestinians. it's also a poke in the eye, by the way, at the president of the united states, who has urged president netanyahu not to do that. it was very interesting yesterday. the pre
a major concern already for both the obama administration and netanyahu's administration. we do know according to a senior israeli official that i spoke with on condition of anonymity that this issue of the united states being asked to strike syria if certain things such as some of their weapons, missiles in particular are heading over the border to hezbollah, an organization in lebanon that the united states and israel both consider a terrorist organization. that is going to be something that is going to be on the agenda in the discussions. but this chemical weapon issue is one that they were going to be talking about beforehand. they also have talked about the difficulties if you speak with folks that know about how to get rid of some of the weapons, the difficulties of getting rid of chemical weapons, you cannot just do an air strike. you have to go in on the ground to pull those out. a very big concern. we've been on the border of the israel-syria border and been able to hear some of the fighting inside of syria. some of that fighting spilled over into israel. so definitely a ver
obama and it's really prime minister benjamin netanyahu about what the borders of israel should be. romney was aided and abetted in that lie by netanyahu, who is an old friend of romney's. they worked together 30 years ago at a boston consulting firm. as we reviewed last night, netanyahu left no room for doubt, he wanted mitt romney to be the next president of the united states. and romney delivered a speech in israel that echoed netanyahu's talking points at that time on iran. >> we should employ any and all measures to dissuade the iranian regime from its nuclear course, and it is our fervent hope that diplomatic and economic measures will do so. in the final analysis, of course, no option should be excluded. we recognize israel's right to defend itself, and that it is right for america to stand with you. >> benjamin netanyahu did everything he could to pretend that the romney position on iran was somehow tougher than the obama position on iran. the romney speech was pure pandering from start to finish, which means that it, of course, did not include the words "palestine" or "pal
and israel go way beyond president obama and prime minister netanyahu. started long before and will continue long after. but the president has been very warm towards the israeli people and we certainly appreciate it. >> now the president of the united states and the prime minister did not really come off fully on the same page on iran. just one way of putting this when the prime minister approached the podium, he talked about iran first. president obama mentioned it last. in fact, prefacing it with the word finally. and here's what they said. >> we prefer to resolve this diplomatically. and there's still time to do so. >> diplomacy and sanctions so far have not stopped iran's nuclear program. >> do you think the u.s. really has, i'll quote president obama, all options on the table when it comes to iran when you hear words like you heard today? >> well, erin, i think we have to look at the facts. and the facts are that words in washington or in jerusalem don't stop centrifuges and events. as all this has gone on, the iranians actually tripled the pace that they're accelerated the pace of uran
that they are staunchal lies, maybe even friends. obama joking about meeting netanyahu's sons. >> they are very good-looking young men who clearly got their looks from their mother. >> well, i can say the same of your daughters. >> reporter: after meeting with obama for more than two hours netanyahu affirmed his trust of the president when it comes to iran. >> i'm absolutely convinced that the president is determined to prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons. >> reporter: later today the president returns to jerusalem where he hopes to bring a little campaign magic to the trip with a speech to some 600 israeli college students. the white house sees this as an opportunity to speak directly to the israeli people. urging them to make a new effort to make peace with the palestinians. >> something they very much want to do. >> indeed, robin, we turn to the latest on that massive manhunt under way in colorado. the head of the state's prison systems gunned down on his front doorstep in front of his wife. abc's clayton sandell is in monument, colorado, with the very latest this morning. good morning to y

arc of netanyahu and obama's relationship is about iran and netanyahu has at times seem to all but threaten a preemptive strike with or without the u.s. pap lot of behind-the-scenes action on the part of the u.s. to get israel to climb down from that position which was successful in 2012. now it seems like they converged a bit. what's your read on where they are right now coming out of this trip >> my read is pretty much that. i was watching before what you said about the president going there and there were no real policy shifts. i think there was a policy shift from netanyahu and this is a culmination of a policy shift starting at the u.n. speech you remember the famous bomb with the red line where he said there's more time but i'm still going to don't make noise about the iranian threat. he said yes i agree with the president's assessment and this is the assessment of the u.s. and really intelligence services. when iran decides to make a nuclear weapon it will take them a year. it's significant. >> this is an example of the president bringing netanyahu towards the american p
of the agenda for president obama and prime minister netanyahu as well as with president obama and the palestinian leadership. the king who wants this very much, it's in his own best interests believes that israeli settlements have moved so far into the west bank, which would be of course the base of a palestinian state, that so many settlers have moved so deep into the territory that it's going to be impossible soon to separate these two sides. and what he says is if you don't have the ability to disentangle the israelis from the palestinians what you're going to be left with is a single unitary state with two groups of people who hate each other. he thinks it is a formula for endless violence and sorrow and is pushing very hard the moderate palestinians to come back to the table and pushing even harder to get the israelis to focus on this, what he sees as a problem not only for the israelis but the palestinians and the jordanians as well. >> thanks for joining us. >>> are you finding that you're getting lingering looks in yoga class lately? well, it might be because everyone
